Benitez confirmed by Inter

Rafael Benitez has been confirmed as the new coach of Internazionale on a two-year contract.

The former Liverpool boss will be presented to the media next Tuesday after putting pen to paper with the Italian and European champions.

Inter were forced to search for a new manager after losing Jose Mourinho to Real Madrid shortly after winning the Champions League final last month.

Benitez has a hard act to follow after Mourinho guided Inter to a trophy treble last season, including a first European crown since 1965 and a fifth consecutive Serie A championship.

The Spaniard left Liverpool after six years in the Premier League on the back of a disappointing season both domestically and in European competition.

"Inter welcomes Rafael Benitez," read a brief club statement."The Spanish coach signed a two-year contract this morning that will run until 30 June 2012.

"Rafael Benitez will be unveiled to the media in a press conference at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti in Appiano Gentile on Tuesday 15 June."
